Tatted Snowflake: Ornament 3

I tatted up another snowflake from the book Festive Snowflakes and Ornaments for Needle and Shuttle Tatters. This one is #3 on page 6, it's also 1 shuttle design which is pretty much the same pattern as #13 except that the threads aren't joined. I really love both variations! I tatted it up in DMC Cebelia thread size 30 in Snow White. The negative space on each is really pretty to me!
To get the thread spaces more even what I did was use the method of putting 2 dots on my finger in the recommended measurement, so I didn't have to get out a measuring tool for every one.

Wow, this is so beautiful! Are you using a product to stiffen it?

Lovely and looks so delicate. You did a great job with the thread spacing, something which I had yet to get right.

Gorgeous snowflake! You did a great job.

Yes I'm using Aleene's stiffening spray to saturate the whole flake and then I touch white glue to all the threads to make them stronger and then pin it and let it dry!

Very pretty! I have such a hard time with thread spacing but your snowflake makes me want to give it another try.

Ya marking your finger with the measurement helps so much with thread spacing!!!

Lovely. I'm always very apprehensive of doing patterns with the spaces between rings and the long picots. But you did great!
